No matter how good the game is, It won't be able to live up to the hype.
I'll still buy it though :)

Er, DNF is still in development 3DR didn't die they just shut-down, their parent company Apogee is still going fine, 3DR fired the internal development team but are completing the project with outside work, and Take 2 don't have the authority to contract gearbox to work on the game anyway (tho 3DR could and may be using them to complete it)

Meh, too little too late now so... I don't expect much out of it.

How can it even compete against the likes of

-Halflife2, Metro2033 and so on... those are just 2 titles that I enjoyed out of a saturated market.

It has to be quite epic and with the help of that damn Title of Duke Nukem... it has a small chance but don't think they will make it into solid gold.

If this does eventually happen it'll be awesome! Borderlands is up there on the list with my all time favourite games, and the humour in that game is right on par with good ol' Duke. Even if they just make a Borderlands with different skin you wont hear me complaining :)

Diablo 3 was announced in June 2008 with no official date of release set. So how you can even compare the game which was 10+ years in development and miss many release dates with Diablo 3 which is 2-3 years in development (typical for games esp of this caliber) and never even had a deadline???

Excuse me, but look at fallout 3. Bethseda completely scrapped the old engine and used the engine they used in oblivion. Last time I checked the game sold big. If this game is indeed using the engine that borderlands is using then it won't be the same engine that has been under "development" for 10 years.

Since when did Take 2 win the court case and own "all the assets"? AFAIK they both dropped suits. Publishing rights, fine, but that statement suggests they own the IP. Take 2 still retains publishing rights and can be a source of income. Seems logical 3DRealms and Gearbox entered an agreement with Take 2 sitting at the table since they'll be flipping any bills at this point.

They need to just publish this game, the expectations that it will be great is very low now. However, if they make a sequel to DNF that has no major obstacles and is release in a shorter time span, i believe that would be much better.

Sure, work on it has been suspended due to the death of 3DRealms, but Take 2 owns all the assets and probably doesn't want to throw it all away.


Marcus, are you an idiot? Take 2 does not own the assets...

I'd buy the elvis part before duke. Even if duke does eventually come out, I think it'll end up sucking.

What we need is a sequel to redneck rampage!

For those people talking about the Duke being a "clone" of Half-Life, or for that matter any game seriously needs to read up on his/her internet "skills" or knowledge. Duke Nukem was primarily one of the first FPS titles back in the day. I still remember Duke 1 & 2 before Duke 3D. The kick-ass character we all rooted for to save our chicks back in the day could come full force and blow people away. I mean seriously, there aren't too many FPS that have a character like Duke (at least original anyways). Plus, if it's as epic as I'm led to believe I will think it'd be worth my time in waiting.

+2 Pre-Order copies if the ball continues to roll. (1 copy for me to play, 1 to keep as a collector's piece to the man who chews bubble gum and kicks ass!).

All hail to the King baby!

Even if it does get released it probably will be mediocre. I dont think the character works well in the type of FPS games people are expecting these days.

He kicks the arse of alien scum for destroying his ride, and gets all the hot babes, plus very big guns.

How does this not meet the interests of today's average teenage gamer.

It's the game that just refuses die! Ever.

I've said it once and I'll say it again: If I see actually this game on the shelves in Gamestop I'll probably have a heart attack!

Also I think at that point the Universe will probably fork off into a separate reality to our own because everyone knows that Duke Nuke Forever cannot be released, just like we cannot go faster than light. The universe will need to reinvent itself and change its own rules in order to handle this conundrum.
